drank Spice Blend by Tiger Spring Tea

I’m really enjoying this. Our autumn here in the Pacific Northwest has been kind of an odd one thus far – we’ve have next to NO rainfall for quite some time (there was a day or two where there were very light drizzles, but nothing at all what I’d call RAIN), and the temperature for the most part has been warm. A few days here and there I’ve felt the need to don a sweater when I go outside, but, they seem few and far between.

But today, it is somewhat blustery. Chilly, but not incredibly cold, but the wind makes that chill feel even colder. So it seems a good day for a warm mug full of this Spice Blend from Tiger Spring Tea.

This is very much like a Christmas Spice blend … and in fact, when I visited the website to learn more about this tea, the tab on my browser says “Spice Blend Christmas Tea” so I think at one time the company called this their Christmas blend. The strongest notes come from the Ceylon, the orange and the clove. It tastes a bit like a good mulled spice cider … replacing the apple with Ceylon tea and a touch of orange.

It’s not quite chai like, although, I did categorize it as a chai, because the spices are similar to chai. It’s more even toned to me than a chai would be – which in my opinion are usually more aggressively spiced. This offers warm, comforting notes rather than a strong, solid spice flavor.

Very enjoyable, just what I needed today.

Yummy, I love anything orange spice. Thanks for mentioning the touch of orange—that makes me want to try this. =)

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

In addition to my passion for tea, I am also a mixed media/altered arts artist. You can see some of my art here: http://eccentricpastiche.blogspot.com

I am also a self-proclaimed foodie. I review local restaurants and the food I buy online here: http://hungryinportland.wordpress.com

My favorite teas are Yellow Teas with most Oolong teas at a close second. As far as “flavored” teas go, I love Earl Grey, Chocolate and Jasmine teas.

I also am intrigued by flavored teas with an unusual or unique flavor combination.

I don’t do a whole lot of swaps anymore, however, I do occasionally sell sampler boxes here: http://liberteas.teatra.de/ I don’t always have sampler boxes available as it depends upon how much time I have as well as packaging supplies. I usually post at least one or two sampler boxes per month, though, so if you’re interested, keep an eye out or PM me and I’ll let you know when I have some posted.

Most of the teas that I record in my notes here are going to have a fairly high rating from me. This is not because I am not discerning, but because I do not usually waste my time on drinking tea I do not care for, nor will I waste my time on writing about it.
